Sleeper WR Schedules Dallas Visit

The Dallas Cowboys, needing help at wide receiver, will work out this relatively unknown prospect in just a few days. <BR> has learned the Dallas Cowboys will privately work out former Missouri wide receiver Thomson Omboga on April 8.

As a senior, Omboga caught 39 passes for 392 yards. He also returned punts last season, taking back 18 kicks for 224 yards.

As a junior, Omboga brought in 52 catches for 466 yards and a touchdown.

"He's a consistent pass catcher with reliable hands," notes one NFL scout.

Most scouts confirm that Omboga had a much better junior year at Missouri. His overall statistics back that statment up.
"He's fluid releasing off the line of scrimmage, and can create separation from opponents. He's not afraid to lay out in a crowd and hauls in the pass with defenders draped on him. He also uses the sidelines well and an alert receiver who helps out the quarterback."

Omboga stands in at 6-feet-1 inch tall, and weighs 195 pounds. He's been clocked in the 4.55 to 4.65 range in the 40-yard dash.

The Cowboys are looking at him as a possible undrafted free agent.

"He has marginal size/speed and seemingly played better as a junior," added the scout. "But somebody will end up taking a chance on him. He could be a productive fourth or fifth receiver in the right system."

The Cowboys have worked out several wide receivers that could be late round or undrafted targets. Utah's Steve Savoy is one name being mentioned around Valley Ranch, and you can now add Omboga to that list.

South Carolina's Troy Williamson, Oklahoma's Mark Clayton, and UAB's Roddy White are three other names, but each of those prospects are likely first or second rounders.
